These pirated products are worth 49 million baht..

Is that the street value of the pirated copies or the value of what they would be if they were real.

As the RTP are prone to using the figures which make them look better I would presume that the real value of the haul would be worth nowhere near 49 million baht.

Oops! I honestly, honestly misread 'confiscates' as 'confesses to'.

I must have been here too long, expecting what it might be about to say. It wasn't wishful thinking.

A few pairs of fake flip flops and tshirts on the table are worth 49M now? 

Where is the rest of it? Probably everyone filled their cars already... ?

Customs will usually give the MSRP of what the genuine goods would go for.

I would say the likelihood is that this cache was of a far greater value. The remainder over and above the 49 million will have been kept back for their own use.
